IMPORTANT MESSAGE: based upon guidance from our bishop, the Right Reverend Lawrence Provenzano, who was guided by the Governor of NY and the NYS Department of Health, as part of the effort to halt the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-2019), all worship services and meetings at St. James are temporarily canceled effective immediately until at least the end of March. We hope that we can remain together spiritually and we encourage you to be careful, caring, kind and compassionate in this challenging time.

Calendar & Schedule of Events
Sunday Worship


8:00 a.m. Rite I


10:00 a.m. Rite II

followed by a lively and inclusive coffee hour

Sunday worship is at 8 and 10 AM and is lively, lovely, and relevant to daily life. It follows a “liturgy” (a pattern) that includes bible readings, a sermon, and “Eucharist” (the Lord’s Supper, or Holy Communion) which is open to all, no matter your beliefs.


The later service includes congregational singing, which is supported by our small but mighty and talented choir, and our organist, David Horvath.

Choir practice is Sunday morning at 9:15, which you can be part of by just showing up!

Bible Study


Temporarily On Hiatus.

Spiritual Healing

First Sunday of each Month

at 11 - 11:30 a.m.

following the 10 a.m. service

All are invited: anyone seeking
· Healing of any illness - physical, emotional, or mental

· Recovery from addictions
· Help in caring for those with addictions
· Healing for a loved one
· Support for something you can’t even name

In the Church’s ancient tradition, as people are comfortable with it, we will pray for healing with the “Laying-on of Hands” and anointing oil.

Come for worship at 10:00, if you like, and stay for coffee, after the healing prayers. Take time in our lovely garden to rest your body and soul. Or just show up for prayers, and leave when you like.
